Healthcare Workers Stuck In Snowstorm Give Trapped Motorists COVID-19 Vaccines

Healthcare Workers Stuck In Snowstorm Give Trapped Motorists COVID-19 Vaccines”

The company announced the interim results of its final-stage clinical trials on Friday.

People should still be vaccinated as quickly as possible, Fauci added.

United States drug maker Johnson & Johnson says a global clinical trial of its single-dose COVID-19 vaccine has shown that it is 66 percent effective.

The phase 3 trial is being conducted in eight countries across three continents - with 44% (19,302) of the participants in the USA, 41% (17,905) in Central and South America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru) and 15% in South Africa. It said the candidate demonstrated "complete protection" against Covid-related hospitalization and death, 28 days post-vaccination.

Effectiveness: 85 percent effective against serious disease after a single dose.

One of the scientists who helped develop Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine applauded Johnson & Johnson's new trial results, even though they are not as stellar as her own.

Dr Anthony Fauci says the emergence and increasing spread of coronavirus mutations means that vaccine makers must be ready to make new shots to stay ahead of the public health crisis. Each vial now officially contains six doses, he said.

"Hopefully by the time we get to the late spring and early summer we will have children being able to be vaccinated", Dr. Anthony Fauci said during the White House coronavirus briefing.

The company says its viral vector vaccine can be stored in a normal refrigerator for at least three months.

The two current COVID-19 vaccines - manufactured in record time by Pfizer and Moderna - that are being distributed and administered to health care workers, nursing home residents and older Americans initially were not tested on young children or pregnant women.

The cost of each vaccination is $16, making the Novavax alternative more expensive than the Oxford University-AstraZeneca vaccine but cheaper than the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna jabs.

If you're getting a two-dose coronavirus vaccine, timing is everything.

Both Fauci and Walensky expressed concern about the spread of coronavirus variants in the USA, with the latest example being a mutation first seen in South Africa that has now been reported in two people in SC. About one in 400,000 people experienced anaphylaxis after Moderna's vaccine, or 2.5 cases per one million doses.
